Drawn to Death: David Jaffe Talks Current Shooters, Guest PlayStation Characters
Sweet Tooth would be at home in Drawn to Death, according to Jaffe.
Designer David Jaffe is perhaps one of the more outspoken figures in the gaming industry and his next title, the PS4-exclusive arena shooter Drawn to Death, will feature a bloody and blase atmosphere that goes against what you normally see in shooters these days.
Jaffe expressed his views on free to play in an interview with PS Gamer (he despises a “Pay to Win” scenario). He also talked about the current state of other shooters and the concept of kill-streaks.
“Even once you have bought the game, you are leveling up to earn weapons which is insane to me. It’s like we can both own the same game but you are a higher level than me so you have access to more gear. That’s not skill base. That’s sh***y. You have just been playing longer. I don’t even like kill streaks. I f**king hate kill streaks because it breaks the skill. ‘So let me get this straight. You killed a bunch of people and we are going to give you even more of an ability to kill a bunch of people’. What the f**k is that?”
Jaffe was also asked which PlayStation characters he’d like to see in Drawn to Death. “It would be hard not to see Sweet Tooth being at home in this world. Bloodborne would be great but seeing as though you can make your own characters, there hasn’t yet emerged a Bloodborne mascot but the tone of that fits [Drawn to Death].
“This is a game where the dregs of society have gathered together to shoot the sh*t outta one another so the Naughty Dog characters would feel too noble. I wish Ed Boon would let us put Scorpion in this game.”
Drawn to Death will be out this year for PS4. Thoughts on Jaffe’s views? Let us know below.
